Email\Text Message Gmail recent changes

**Please Note** This fix was working, but recently no longer effective.

Due to a change to Security Protocols with Gmail SMTP services, if your text messages stop working there is a change to make that might get this working again.

  1. To find the email settings, log in to the DVR “Main Menu” , select “settings” , and find “network”. 
  2. In the Network settings page you are looking for the “email or SMTP” menu.
  3. In this menu you will change the “port” from 465 to 587, and in the drop down list for “encrypt” you will change from SSL to TLS. Apply changes and run the email test. If successful then you should get mail test normal message. Click on Save or OK.

Alternative SMTP Service settings for Yahoo Email (requires email account with Yahoo)

Port: 587
Encrypt: TLS

Username : your yahoo account (example
Password: your yahoo password
Sender: your yahoo account

Yahoo does have the same settings inside the account settings that need to be enabled in the security section for allowing less secure apps .
“Allow Apps that use less secure sign in”
By default that setting is not enabled, so make sure you enable it.
